I found a list of punishments from 1848, some of the items on the list of offenses.

For bad cooking=12 strokes of the whip.
For stealing a major's wig=12 strokes of the whip.
For skulking=12 strokes of the whip.
For running into debt on shore=12 strokes of the whip.
For tearing a sailor's frock=9 strokes of the whip.
For filthiness=12 strokes of the whip.
For noise at quarters=6 strokes of the whip.
For bad language=12 strokes of the whip.
For dirty and unwashed clothes=12 strokes of the whip.
For being out of hammock after hours=12 strokes of the whip.
For throwing overboard the top of a spittoon=6 strokes of the whip.
For skylarking (running up and down the rigging of a ship)=6 strokes of the whip.
For being naked on deck=9 strokes of the whip.

Surley there is no need to punish the Navy. When I was on baord HMS Brave for 6 months in the Falklands all they did was get pissed and beat each other up!!!!! How the nights flew by. You could set your watch by when the first fist would fly. The duty officer used to come round on inspection every night at 2100 and lock the fridge, but they guys had a spare key!!!!!!!!
